25 August 2017: Prejudice against women in business and corporate is very real. If you have read Lean In – Women, Work, and the Will to Lead by Nell Scovell and Sheryl Sandberg, you will know that this is a reality for many women around the world, but according to Mignonette Fair, co-owner of EditA – a one-stop language shop for anyone with a story to tell, women are their own worst enemy in business more often than not. Under the EditA banner, Fair collaborates with Cecilia Mnisi from MMJ Interpretation Services and they are geared towards changing perceptions about women leading successful businesses by being the change they want to see.
“I think the greatest challenge to overcome as a woman in business is small thinking. We don’t believe in ourselves enough and hide behind our “small” businesses. We fight each other for scraps when the pie is actually more than big enough for everyone,” says Fair. Continue reading

Former Sharks, Stormers and Ajax Cape Town Mental Performance Coach, Tom Dawson-Squibb, provides critical tips on how to remain disciplined during training to ensure you are at your finest.
1. Define it
The crucial thing to remember when it comes to discipline is that it is very subjective and therefore, it is imperative to clearly define the context of how you intend to reach your targets. This will enable you to have a finite line in sight. If you leave this too ambiguous you may find yourself becoming increasingly frustrated as you will be unable to evaluate your progress.
2. Rome wasn’t built in a day – baby steps
You are unlikely to go from a couch potatoe to an Olympic athlete in a day so rather try to improve your self-discipline in incremental steps. Take time to reflect on the little gains you have made, from the chocolate you avoided, to the run you went for rather than watching TV. You will gain momentum and become more disciplined far easier in this way than if you try and go from zero to hundred in one day.
3. Reward yourself for small wins Continue reading
Indoni Miss Cultural South Africa 2017 finalists representing their respective cultures were announced at a jubilant ceremony in Ballito, KwaZulu-Natal, on 19 August. The event formed part of the Indoni Women’s Summit where inter-generational discussions were held on issues such as culture, its values, moral regeneration, and on growing young women leaders.
The young finalists, called princesses, were chosen by a panel of judges within their regions to represent their cultures, based on a variety of criteria that include Indoni Culture School exam results, their understanding of their cultures, living their cultural values, cultural performances, and their confidence and ability to be an effective ambassador for their culture in the forthcoming year.
Says Sibongile Nzimande, CEO of Indoni SA, “The Indoni Miss Cultural South Africa is not a true beauty pageant. It’s much more than that. It is founded on the premise of moral regeneration, which is desperately needed in this country. With the upsurge in crime and abuse against women, through our Indoni programmes and festivals, we hope to achieve a return to true African cultural values where the spirit of uBuntu and respect and caring for all people is prevalent.” Continue reading
